Learn about Cybersecurity and Why It Matters

Jul 26, 2012

With cybersecurity legislation set to be considered on the floor of the Senate later this week and into next, we would like to invite you to join the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus this afternoon at 3:00 PM in Cannon 210 for an educational briefing and discussion on what cybersecurity is and why it matters – in plain English.

Representatives from Northrop Grumman will join the Caucus to share their excellent Cyber Academy briefing – developed for senior executives, DHS, and the Navy - and answer questions on issues surrounding cybersecurity. This is an excellent opportunity for those new to cyber issues to get caught up, for those who don’t directly handle cybersecurity issues to learn more, or for those who have been tracking the issue for some time to fill in any gaps.

The Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus was founded by Congressman Jim Langevin and Congressman Michael McCaul to raise awareness of cybersecurity issues and provide a forum for Members representing different committees of jurisdiction to discuss the challenges in securing cyberspace.
